it appears this dude knew much more than I know what im doing, as others pointed him in the direction, and he took care of business… I think I may need a bit more hand holding, but Im esentially using the same basis as that dude. I got a PI4, a pisound, a mcp23017, and some ky040 encoders (read that these have a resistor in there)
i know ill jump in the webconf once i make the connections, but i looked over the allinone schematic and some of it makes sense, and some doesnt since this is my first foot into rolling my own build. when looking at that mcp diagram, what is inta intb? all thes encoders have a ground, can it all share the same ground pin? pin 7 8 27 28 go to sw1 (what is sw1 and sw-1)? vcc and reset goes to a c4 (whats a c4 other than an explosive? goin to a 100n (i guess its a resistor?)
So i can probably take a picture of this lot of PI stuff I bought, but i dont know what half of it would be useful. I do have a small 3.5 lcd, and a 7inch waveshare, and 7inch official pi display, but doesnt these displays also have to connect to the MCP?
since im an idiot, I will surely make a thorough post if I ever get this all working. this way the next idiot can do it with less assistance than i, and of course a brief sound and many pictures once its all done.
